Book Description

For those with an interest in American history and sporting, heres a fascinating, authoritative look at some of the most famous guns of the Wild West, drawn from the collection of the Cody Firearms Museum of the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody, Wyoming. Known as the Smithsonian of the West, this grand museum complex is home to many treasures related to the history, art, and ethnology of the American West.
